Stunning video of newborn twins hugging
Being born must be pretty scary, but if you have a buddy it makes things better.
This lovely video shows just how much newborn babies love to
be held, and how they come into the world with the need for the human touch. It’s
not news that
(keeping a tiny baby close to the body either
skin-on-skin or in a sling) has immense benefits
for the child, but this video
takes kangaroo care one step further: Newborn twins being bathed clasp onto one
in what may the most perfect hug captured on film, ever.The amazing world of twins
Twins are said to have an unusual bond: After spending so
much time in the womb, their bond is often life-long and can even be expressed
in ways such as one twin seemingly reading the other’s mind or feeling another
twin’s emotions despite that twin being on a different continent.
Twins have been central to mythology for this very reason,
but we think this delightful video of twins holding each other and enjoying the
comfort a hug offers is real and inspiring.
